Belle (2013 Movie) Night Thread

Belle is a 2013 period piece based on the real life of Dido Elizabeth Belle (1761 – 1804), “the illegitimate mixed race daughter of Admiral Sir John Lindsay (Matthew Goode).  Raised by her aristocratic great-uncle Lord Mansfield (Tom Wilkinson) and his wife (Emily Watson), Belle’s lineage affords her certain privileges, yet her status prevents her from the traditions of noble social standing.” -Fox Searchlight official blurb

If you enjoy period pieces, I definitely recommend this one, which deals with issues of race, gender, and privilege.  Oh, and Draco Malfoy (actor Tom Felton) plays a bad guy again.

Have a good night & happy posting!
